Lovely Scimitar 1800ti 1988. Very low ownership. For Sale

Scimitar 1800ti 1988. One of the last of the SS1
With regret I am selling my very nice 1800ti. I had intentions of stashing it away but I’ve run out of room. I’ve owned 4 of these over the years and this is by far the best.
Very low ownership. First registered on 1/11/88 by Reliant themselves then bought by a Mrs Simpson on the 1/04/90. She kept the car for 3 years then ownership passed to the current registered keeper who looked after it for 26 years.
The car has been cherished over the years and benefits from numerous upgrades.
To name a few-
SS Tank
SS Exhaust
SS Cooling pipes
SS Braided brake hoses
Vented disc conversion
Copper brake pipes
New window quarter lights
Front Spax shocks
Newly refurbished alloys, polished rims with new vredestein tyres, only been to the MOT station. Even has the original black caps for the nuts.
New Battery and moved to the boot.
New water pump and cambelt in 2016

The car also comes with loads of paperwork detailing word done, parts and handwritten details. Service book with 14 stamps. 12 previous MOT certs.
The car shows 104000 miles but the owner was offered a brand-new crate motor from Reliant when the factory closed. There was nothing wrong with the original but he had the new engine fitted along with turbo and gearbox.
This has only done around 30000 miles so is fresh.

The interior is really clean, good carpets and original leather seats in very nice condition, just a small nick on the passenger seat. Factory hard top fitted and also comes with a new heavy vinyl soft top and frame (This need fitting. Still has the protection cover on the rear window)
Body is very good, shines well with minimal age-related marks. Dealer plates fitted. Polyurethane panels with a galvanised chassis so no corrosion issues.
MOT was valid to June but I have put a full 12 months ticket on today.
Recent service, the car is ready to enjoy.
If you don’t know about these cars this is the range topping 1800ti with the Nissan turbo engine. Really does go well and handles amazingly, real summer fun.
Any questions please ask, if you want to come and view your welcome, if you want more pictures I have loads so can send.
May take cheap PX
Thanks for looking
